    Would it be possible to have all the build threads under one topic, like the muscle bike build off?

    Obligatory pic per page post.

    I recently got back the frame from this build I traded off. I'll be using the same handle bar as well.

    Somebody said coaster brake only. I have a 7 speed skinny cruiser that kills. Basically a hybrid touring bike.
    That being said, what would you say about a nexus with a coaster?
    Been dying for a reason to do that.

    The wife approved also.... Bad thing here is, I built her a girls version of my skinny cruiser, so she expects her bike to get a nexus.......
    Anyone got 2 nexus hubs, to go puhleaze.........

    I'm in with the Cleveland Comet. I started a build thread, but if there's more than just a few builds, they might bet better under the same forum.

    I'm in, just need to get my build thread started.

    I take it that all participants will just be starting their threads in the general build forum?

    I did begin a thread in the general build forum. Not sure if that was where they should be.... and wildcat, I am surely following your build!!

    Looking good!

    I think that's a Rollfast, as good as or better than a Ross.

    I'm in, I'll be building another but this is one I just finished for the Flatlander build, rules were skinny tires, no cables, It has a new S/A 2 speed kickback.
    I'm unsure of what frame I'll be using but will post again soon.
